Autumn migration of the Goldcrest (Regulus regulus) in western Hungary At a site in Tömörd (W Hungary) in 2000-2001, numbers of Goldcrests peaked on the last days of October and the first days of November (24 Oct. - 10 Nov.). Migration of both sexes was somewhat differentiated - females migrated a little bit earlier than males. Goldcrests arriving in the peak migration periods stored significantly more fat than individuals ringed in the other periods (ANOVA: F4,305 = 28.6, p < 0.0001). The… Expand

Bird number dynamics during the post-breeding period at the Tömörd Bird Ringing Station, western Hungary
The temporal pattern of migration of long-distance migrants was different from that of the medium- and short-distance migratory Species and the countries where the birds monitored at the site were ringed or recovered abroad. Expand

Fat deposition and migration capacity of robins erithacus rebecula and goldcrests regulus regulus at ottenby, Sweden
High fat deposits found in Robins and Goldcrests after one night migrations to Ottenby suggest that these birds could migrate two or more nocturnal stages without refuelling. Expand
Speed of migration and migratory flight lengths of passerine birds ringed during autumn migration in Sweden
The autumn migration speed of 62 passerine species was estimated on the basis of short-time Swedish ringing recoveries (n = 2212). The average migration speed was lowest among short-distance migrantsExpand
Competition and fat deposition in Goldcrests (Regulus regulus) at a migration stop-over site
Birds moving between breeding areas and wintering areas normally divide their migration into several flight stages with intermittent stop-over periods of fat deposition. A bird that arrives at aExpand
